  1. Add onedrive for business folder to Channel

    It would be nice to be able to add a Onedrive for Business "Share" link to a channel.

    Example: We have a shared OneDrive for Business - we use a general account, and we share credentials and/or share the root folder with the team.

    We have folders that have files for a specific team (pre-existing prior to Microsoft Teams being published) in this shared OneDrive. It would be nice to be able to associate that EXISTING folder to a channel.

    As of now, we can only create a NEW sharepoint library, we would like to attach an existing library that…

    • Need Better clarity / functionality around archiving or exporting channels / threads

      I understand that Teams archives for retention purposes, but we need to have the ability to archive for organization purposes channels associated with projects that are complete. We don't want to set up a new "Team" every time there is a new project, as typically the same "Team" works on multiple projects. Instead, it would be great to be able to archive a Channel, however keeping that Channel as part of the searchable/indexed materials (so that a user could later keyword search for items in an archived Channel).

      What should also be possible is to "export" a channel conversation to…

      • Unify email group and channel feed/posts

        When I create a team, I get an O365 Group with it, and an Outlook DL. I can also sign up for notifications for the channel.

        The channel feed and email group should behave consistently:
        - If I email the DL, it should appear in the Team feed.
        - If I post in the Team Feed, and I have notifications turned on, it should email me. If I respond, that should appear in the Team Feed.
        - I should not have to go to Groups or Outlook to find some of the messages, but see others in the Team Feed...…

        • Sub-Teams

          Ability to have sub-teams within a larger team chat structure. These sub-teams should receive notifications on issues that pertain to them while the rest of the team can see the messages but should not be notified.

          As an example, we have two teams(data management and tech support) that coordinate work together in a channel (support services team). When messages need to alert TS or DM but not both, there is no way to use @data management to notify only the relevant part of the team. We have to use @support services to get the attention of both.

          • ability to move new message to be a child of the previous message

            The most frequent mistake made in our usage of Teams channels is that everyone will eventually post a new message when they intended to reply to the latest message. Even those of us that have made the mistake before will make it again.

            It would be great if there was an option against a new message to associate it with the previous message. This would save any hassle of removing the message and reposting it as a child of the previous message.

            • Member Permissions for Channels

              Request #1: Currently, as shown in that attachment, permissions can only be changed for the general channel. Allow these settings to be changed for each channel.

              Request #2: Add an addition option where "Only owners can start a new conversation, but anyone can reply". Example use: Only a manager could post an announcement, but everyone could reply to that comment.

              • Bug? Uploading team logo does not always work

                I experienced this error several times now. I created a new team and tried to upload a team picture. No matter which size or file type (png, jpg), I always get the message "Problem uploading your picture. Please try again later."
                Then I created another team and the picture upload worked without any problem. After waiting approx. 5 minutes, uploading worked on the first team.

                Why is that? Do we just have to wait some time before we add a team picture? Then some notification would ne nice when creating a new team.

                Great work by the way! :-)

                    • Adjust Team Picture (Reposition/Resize)

                      I find the lack of adjustment (positioning and zoom) annoying in Teams. I would like to be able to use a product/company logos for the team picture without having to manually crop/resize the pictures in microsoft paint using trial and error to get them to display nicely.

                      Pretty much all websites/chat programs has the functionality I have described. I have attached an example of the desired behaviour - available in Skype, but not available in Teams :(

                        One good feature would be to be able to search in the Files section within a Team. You can provide a search button so we can search through the Files section without leaving the app.

                          I know this can be seen on a separate screen, but if you're going to take the IRC model, don't leave out some of the best parts. I'd like to see a channel member list down the right side, like you can get in Slack and IRC. This could be especially useful in the integrated microsoft environment, plus I like to see who I'm talking to.

                            • Teams Live Meetings - entrance and exit announcements

                              While holding a live meeting in Teams, when someone dials in to the meeting or leaves the meeting, their entrance and exit is announced to the group. This disrupts the flow of the meeting when someone is talking/presenting. Please allow the meeting facilitator to turn off notifications of members entering and exiting the meeting. In addition, the option of universal mute would be great, as unmuted participants can often result in echo feedback which disrupts the meeting.

                                Hi,

                                if we have to delete any conversations happened in the Teams, Group owner should have that access, unfortunately only member (not an owner) is able to delete the conversation or message that they sent.

                                Can you look in to this ?

                                  Is it possible to re-order the channels within Teams so that you can choose which channel to have first, e.g. with the most frequent traffic or highest relevance, rather than alphabetical order?

                                  Going one step further can channels with high traffic automatically feature first?

                                  • Virtual group for tagging multiple members inside a group

                                    Make a virtual user grouping that can be managed by conversation group admin.

                                    For example, all the release teams in the company are on a single Teams conversation group. If a person wants to address all the scrum masters in their message, there is no way to do it currently except to @tag each one of them.

                                    My suggestion is to have a virtual grouping like @ScrumMasters. The group name and the members of that group should be manageable by the admin for the whole group.

                                    • Use Slack-Style Channel Joins Instead of Favorites/Follows

                                      The channel architecture in Microsoft Teams is unintuitive and confusing.

                                      Follow vs Favorite a Channel: What is the difference? Which one will alert me to new messages? Which one will alert me to channel mentions? How do I know who will receive notifications when I mention a channel?

                                      We have many project-related channels and it's difficult to notify project members.

                                      Slack's channels are intuitive and notifications are transparent. Joining a channel in Slack is committing to involvement in that channel. Naturally, members will receive channel mention notifications by default, as expected.

                                      In Teams, users can participate in a channel but…

                                      • Allow organizer to end meetings.

                                        People should not have to manually leave meetings in order for them to end. We have had several people forget to manually leave meetings, and the channel continues to show that a meeting is in progress when in fact it has ended.

                                        The organizer of channel meetings should be able to 'end' meetings altogether instead of simply leaving the meeting space.

                                        • Add archiving feature on Teams' posts

                                          Considering that teams channel are sometime used for discussing projects, problems, long term plans, etc. in business regardless of the size. Having the possibility to archive an entire post (and its replies) either in an dedicated archive feature added to teams or give the option to send the post to a different teams / channel ( that would be used for various backup decisions or archiving data) would be a great addition to MS Teams.

                                          This would go hand in hand with the search feature in Teams to easily find old post that would be relevant reference to a new…
